Customer Reviews of Sony HDR-XR160 Full HD 160GB HDD Camcorder, Black
VERY GOOD VIDEO2/26/2012
This camera has very good zoom. I can see stuff through this camera that I cant see in real life with my own eyes. The picture quality is very good outdoors but indoors its a little grainy even on the highest quality recording. The camera captures audio very well and colors well too. The menu is very simple and easy to use and the software that comes with it is nice too. The hard drive is really helpful because you dont have to buy expensive memory cards. The battery life is about an hour and 40 min on the highest quality recording and the hard drive holds 16 hours on the highest quality. The camera is also very light and looks great. Only downside is that its kind of expensive and you might be able to find a camera with similar features thats maybe $100 less.
i love sony11/9/2011
This is a great camcorder. Did a lot of research on the camcorders and this was the newer version of another great camcorder. Do not need a memory card as all info can be saved to the hard drive then transferred to your computer. Another great feature is it has a usb cord in the hand strap so you can easily connect to your computer to download or charge the battery.
